Tri Yann

 B i o g r a p h y

Tri Yann are a French band from the Nantes region of Brittany (Breton: Naoned), who play Breton Celtic music.

The band was founded in 1971 by Jean Chocun, Jean-Paul Corbineau and Jean-Louis Jossic - all of whom remain members - hence the suggested name of Tri Yann an Naoned (English: Three Jean's of Nantes), Jean and Yann being respectively the French and Breton versions of the name John).

As the best known celtic band in France, Tri Yann are one of the longest-standing Breton music groups surviving from the folk rock revival of the 1970s. The group are famous for the outlandish costumes worn on stage.

Among their best-known tracks are La jument de Michao (including the chorus "J'entends le loup, le renard et la belette" i.e. "I hear the wolf, the fox and the weasel") or Dans les prisons de Nantes ("In the prisons of Nantes").
